The CSC has updated its SpamAssassin configuration to use a site-wide Bayesian
learner instead of per-user. This will hopefully reduce duplicate efforts to
keep spam out of our inboxes. Unfortunately this may lead to increased false
positives. See the instructions on our

We have a new computer called <tt>glucose-fructose</tt>, or <tt>sugar</tt>
for short. As a result, <tt>carbonated-water</tt> is temporarily out of

We've changed to the new site! Please send your comments to the <a
href="mailto:webmaster@csclub.uwaterloo.ca">webmaster</a>. The <a
href="/old/">old site</a> is still available. A few things may not
be working quite right yet, but I'm working on it.

<newsitem author="sjdutoit" date="2002-04-22">
Added <a href="http://library.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/">books</a>! About 2.5
shelves are there, minus a whole lot that weren't readily accessible from
the Library of Congress. Getting all of the books on there is going to
be a tough job. These are, by the way, managed by good-old (or new?)
CEO. Thanks to Ryan Golbeck and Petio for their hard work getting
ISBN numbers onto disc.

Added a bunch of <a href="/events/old">old events</a> and some
documents, including the <a

Added the <a href="/about/members">membership list</a>. <a
href="/events/old">Old events</a> are working. Event terms, as
well as the current term are determined automagically now. Lots of
work done. Some more stubs up (office etc.). And I introduce cow -
that is, the CSC Ontological Webalizer - which is just a wrapper
around libxslt with some extra xpath functions. It is now what is
being used to build the site, instead of xsltproc.

About/Memberlist stub up. Made the CSC logo gold. Isn't it nifty?
